Channa 65 ~ Chole 65!

>>  Tuesday, October 21, 2008

This was such a delicious snack and you know what Konda was insisting she does it. Yeah Athamma and she happened to come across this recipe and ever since then, she has been after Athamma to make these for her. Finally after a long time, they managed to get doing these.

Konda wanted to mix and deep fry these herself. As I have said, I get scared letting her near the stove. But she was asking for it so long, that I thought she will take care of standing at a safe position. When we have the Kadai ready with oil, she stood few yards away and stretched out to drop the channa into the oil. And asked if the distance was fine. Anyway finally everything was fried.

But before that Peddu and Chinnu saw these and they also wanted it. So after an episode of trying to keep them away, these got done.
They make an excellent evening snacks for Kids and since its protein rich, you shouldn't bother about deep frying!

Ingredients Needed

Channa / Chickpea - 1 cup
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Garlic pods - 2
Chili powder - 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Maida / All purpose flour - 1 tsp
Besan / Gram Flour - 1 tsp
Rice flour - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Ajino Motto - a pinch
Oil for frying

Method to prepare:

Pressure cook Channa till its cooked. But ensure its not soggy. Drain and take them in a bowl.

Mix all the other ingredients to the channa. Make sure you loosen the outer skin of garlic, less it might burst when you drop it in hot oil.

Heat a kadai with oil. Once its hot, gently drop the masala channa intot he hot oil and cook in sim, till its done.

Drain them to a kitchen towel.

Makes it an excellent evening snack for Kids.

Sending this to Sra, who is hosting Fourth Helping of Susan's My Legume Love Affair.
